This is probably the biggest project any textile designer could ever dream of.
It is a custom in the European Union for the country holding the presidency to show their appreciation and thankfulness by giving gifts to all of the delegates attending the informal ministerial and technical meetings held in the EU.Together with Hanna Korsar and SANGAR a total of 26,000 neckties and 14,000 scarves – made of “100% pure silk” – have been produced. The color scheme and the pattern was inspired by Estonians love for nature and its current ongoing digital revolution. From the distance you can see a right leaning stripy tie but if you look closely you can see that the pattern is formed out of binary code representing Estonia being the frontrunner in e-society.
